Information Literacy: what next

From Thomas Hapke's blog post at he links to a number of items including his own powerpoint on Slideshare (in German) Informationskompetenz: wie weiter (Information Literacy: what next). He identifies the most important things to reflect on as regards information literacy as: Curiosity and doubt; Reflection and learning about information (e.g. social and ethical implications of its use); Intellectual property and privacy issues. He links Information Literacy, Web 2.0 and e-learning as being intertwined and complimentary. There are some intersting references at the end of the powerpoint (again, mostly in German)
